Question: Euler-Bernoulli Beam using Krylov–Duncan Method

Hello Everyone!

I have one more challenge for you.

How can I find for a Free-Pinned-Pinned-Free (3-span) beam (Picture A below) using the Krylov–Duncan Method (Literature links and references below):

- the matrix of the system?

- the transcendental equation in order to determine the natural frequencies?

- the first three mode shapes?

I tried to do it as you can see from my MAPLE (file below), but I got stuck when I use the command "determinant" and it did not find the transcendental equation.
